The South meets the Lower East Side on the second floor of the Thompson LES hotel's outdoor terrace, serving up plates of barbeque and slaw, smoked and boiled nuts, and casual games of Ping-Pong. Paper lanterns give the air a festive vibe, but the beer list of bottles and cans takes itself seriously, covering cult favorites like the Hitachino White Ale from Japan and small-batch Sorachi Ace from Brooklyn Brewery. Wine is also available by the glass or carafe, and prosecco by the bottle, should you want to make things bubbly.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
